    [Creators Update] How to get rid of this new "Actions Recommended"?


    Talking about this new icon



    If you do right click->open there, it's about


    which I *don't* want' turned on.

    The usual old way from the "Notifications & actions" screen does *not* exist anymore.

    Furthermore, on the "Change Action Center settings" screen, the relevant part may be grayed out! (and the Security Center service is even on)

    ^ Got it. It was the Task Manager -> Start Up Windows Defender icon. It was re-enabled on its own after this system-wide update of "Creators Update", and it's also kinda counter-intuitive since this is not called the Windows Defender icon anymore but a general "Actions Recommended".

    Or at least I think that's what did it. I don't think I changed anything else relevant before it disappeared.

    It's not uncommon for settings to be restore back to default after a new build update.

    I see this as well and in my case its because of a sleep setting and a missing driver for a fingerprint reader.

    I noticed yesterday that the icon had turned green (reported as all OK) and so I open action centre and it was reported there as well that 'no actions needed'. This morning and its back to yellow again.

    I wonder if there is some odd reset issue at work (by design) in that the icon clears to green after so many days to reassure the user. After all it is a non critical error. When you investigate things it resets to yellow again.

    Is that plausible or daft :)

    Update in Windows 10 build 16199:

    We’ve updated Windows Defender Security Center so as to no longer flag disabled drivers as issues. We have also adjusted the health scan logic so that using maximum brightness when connected to AC power will not flag a warning. Appreciate all who shared feedback on the subject.

    I wonder why mine went back to yellow when I peeked the other day. I'm going to leave it and not open the Security Centre and see what happens.
